The problem of the after-effects of infectious hepatitis is of particular importance at the present time because of the high incidence of this disease during the recent World War. It is now recognized that certain cases of this disease depart from the usual benign course and persist in showing signs and symptoms of liver insufficiency for months or even years following the initial attack. Weakness, fatigue, anorexia, liver tenderness, pain over the liver after exertion, and intolerance to fatty foods have been noted as the most prominent symptoms of this lingering type of hepatitis.1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7
